Chandler Kinney and Ariel Martin are getting to know more about a teen painting prodigy!
The Zombies 2 stars interviewed Tyler Gordon for the new Disney Channel short-form series In The Nook, celebrating and introducing viewers to notable Black men and women making history.
Tyler is a 14-year-old painting prodigy from San Jose, California, who overcame early health challenges as well as being bullied because of his stutter and now uses his art to help other kids fight against bullying.
He is also the youngest artist to be featured in a recent exhibit of American contemporary Black Artists!
Through his paintings and sharing his story, Tyler’s joyous spirit and immense talent have captured the attention (and hearts) of the many celebs, sports icons and dignitaries he has painted, including Vice President Kamala Harris, who personally called him!
Be sure to tune in to the Disney Channel, beginning TODAY (February 8), to check out the In The Nook series.
Tyler’s paintings are also featured in Disney Channel’s “Use Your Voice” interstitial celebrating the journey of Vice President Kamala Harris, which is airing on Disney Channel, Disney Junior and Disney XD throughout the month of February.
